Is Richard Spencer correct?

Is Richard Spencer really Black X/Ace's real name? I know the very first Back X story (in Feature Funnies #13) says the Black X was criminologist Richard Spencer, who faked his own death to become a full-time spy. But that same story says this in a caption: "...for obvious reasons, we will use fictitious names throughout". I interpret that as saying that Black X's real name is not Richard Spencer, and the author is not going to tell us the real name. Shadzane (talk) 22:44, July 23, 2014 (UTC)
